of the women we have had. i think it is fair to say bill clinton was hillary clinton's best ally and worst detractor when she ran for president and bob dole also had trouble with the surrogate role. the spouse of a woman running for president be described as needing to be a benefactor spouse, someone who is quiet enough in the background, not making any gaffes in the press and yet supportive of the spouse. we haven't seen it yet. >> in defense of those men, the role hasn't been defined. it is not that they are messing up necessarily. they don't know what the role of male political spouse is. >> two women who were very prominent, hillary clinton and elizabeth dole, their spouses are very prominent politicals in their own way. they want to get in and say something in their lives as well. >> interesting discussion. we talked at the outset that you wrote about nine different women and how you selected them. are selected four that i want the three review spend time developing your thoughts on and three have kind of a direct relationship to the institute in kansas and one of them is th

this in the 2008 campaign, as did hillary clinton interestingly. they would prefer to be called progressive liberal. now, who are the progress is? well, following woodrow wilson, the progressive movement copperas a school wycherley believed in the inevitability of human progress. and by literally i mean literally. as opposed so what 90 percent of the speaker's mean, figuratively . they literally believed in the inevitability of human progress and that moral and political advance was eventually inseparable from material and technological advance. human progress was inevitable because of the the new doctrine or discovery concerning history, that history had a mind of its own and that it had a destination in mind from its very beginnings to its culmination or completion. the german philosopher was the greatest philosopher of history in the sense of the term. american liberalism always had more than his followers and credit which is unfortunate thing for americans. let me offer to potations that will characterize this kind of progressivism that infiltrated american politics. when he

president clinton's high in the sky plan to spend $6 billion for clean energy. was dead on arrival. obama got $90 billion in his first months before his staff could find bathrooms in the west wing. just ridiculous. the stimulus was pouring unprecedented rivers of cash and renewables and energy efficiency and every imaginable form, advanced biofuel and electric vehicles and cutting edge research, smarter grid, cleaner coal, factories to make that green stuff in the united states. it was by far the biggest energy bill in history. kind of got me curious what else was in the stimulus everyone was laughing about. i did some investigative reporting with a google search. i learned that the stimulus had also launched race to the top which was a real moment. have you heard of race to the top? there was a huge deal in the education reform world that was supposed to transform public schools. i had no idea it was the stimulus program. did any of you? any way, it became clear there was a huge story can in plain view. most of the stimulus was standard keynesian stimulus, pumping money into the e

clinton and the sexism that was there. and it was appalled i know when i had my husband read it to edit it before we send off he said you're making his stuff up. chris matthews did not say that, or the photographer, -- you know, and i think it is far worse than we may be think it is. and these women who we studied really did have some of that stuff. >> i think it's more confident for women to present themselves physically in public because there is no uniform because there's a lack of a legacy. we haven't had a woman that we can say this is what a woman president looks like. so the press tends to cover her appearance before the cover what she stands for and what she plans to do as president. >> there's discrimination based on adherents generally. it's not just something that affects women. there's discrimination against people who are overweight, discrimination against people who are short. but it seems to be particularly intends for women candidates as opposed to men candidates. chris christie, you know, should he have run or should he run will certainly get some attention because of h

record before that was george w. bush, who had held about half that amount. he broke the clinton's record and so on. so it's important to know it's a story. it's meant to bomb its critic is quick to jump on him for devoting so much time to fundraising. and he absolutely has broken records. but there's a very understandable reason why. and what we've seen in presidential fundraising is an unintentional consequence of the rules of our political system, that we have campaign finance rules designed to reduce corruption or the appearance of corruption. and to do limit the amounts of money that presidents are candidates can raise from any individual or any group. the idea is you cannot buy an election if the comic of $2500 to a presidential candidate per election cycle. when you combine those relatively low campaignÑ contribution limit for the rapidly escalating cost of campaign, presidents are virtually forced to spend more and more time raising money and it has been an escalation. 20 years ago with stories about how the first president bush won a record-breaking fundraiser. thing abo
